World Final 2019 – Grand Jury Finalists

octobre 22, 2019 11:22 by International Chocolate Awards in Finalists

The International Chocolate Awards is proud to announce the Grand Jury Finalists of the World Final Competition which was held 7-12 October, 2019 in Florence, Italy.

The Grand Jury Finalists are the entries that made it through to the final Grand Jury round, following four days of judging by our expert panel. The Finalists are the nominations from which the Grand Jury select the prize winners, through private voting. The Grand Jury follow strict rules, which you can read here (PDF). While listing as a Grand Jury Finalist is an achievement in itself, it does not necessarily indicate that the entry will receive a prize.

The judging panel included judges from the UK, USA, Europe and Asia and members of our international Grand Jury panel. The panel was made up of chocolate experts, pastry chefs, journalists, restaurant reviewers, bloggers, culinary educators and chefs.

All World Final entries were previous winners in the 2019 regional or national competitions.

Chocolate Tasters’ Finalists

This year the World Final judging included special judging by alumni and Certified Tasters of the International Institute of Chocolate and Cacao Tasting, the overseeing body of the International Chocolate Awards. The alumni and IICCT Certified Tasters separately judged plain/origin bars in cacao origins with a large number of entries, along with selected flavoured bars and filled chocolates categories to award their own special « Chocolate Tasters«  prizes. The Finalists are the highest scoring entries from which the final Chocolate Tasters’ winners will be drawn.

2019 World Winners Announcement and Prize Celebration – Antigua – Guatemala

The World Winners will be revealed and certificates will be presented at the 2019 World Winners Announcement and Prize Celebration, which will be held for the first time in in a cacao growing country, in the enchanting and historical city of Antigua, Guatemala. Antigua is a gem of colonial architecture and one of the most beautiful and historic cities of the Americas, in a country known as one of the major cultural cradles of cacao and where chocolate recipes that hark back to Maya times are still alive. The International Chocolate Awards is proud to be holding its 2019 World Final event in this important producer of fine cacao.

The event will be held on Monday 18 November, 2019, from 5:00pm – 9:00pm at the Palacio de los Capitanes in Antigua, the historic XVI century building located in the Central Square of Antigua. Guests will be able to enjoy an exhibition of our winners’ products and the event will culminate in a cocktail where guests can taste authentic Guatemalan specialties.
